The LAPD has a wretched reputation compared to any other major city's police force. They really are considered simply a gang with fancier guns, uniforms, and weapons by many citizens. As Ithrekro has pointted out, a lot of this stems from the utter disconnection between the force and the population thanks to the lack of walking beats, the lack of community policing, etc.
